Late Fellaini goal consigns Arsenal to sixth straight away defeat

Man City crush West Ham in London

Mnchester United's Marouane Fellaini
1 of 1

Marouane Fellaini scored an injury-time winner as 4-9 shots Manchester United beat Arsenal 2-1 in Arsene Wenger’s final visit to Old Trafford as Gunners boss.

Paul Pogba, a 10-1 chance to score first, put United ahead before Henrikh Mkhitaryan equalised for the Gunners against his former club.

However, Fellaini’s header made it six straight away defeats in the league for Arsenal, who are 4-1 to win Thursday’s Europa League semi-final second leg away to Atletico Madrid in 90 minutes.


Premier League standings


Juventus manager Max Allegri remains 3-1 favourite to succeed Wenger at Arsenal and the Italian is as short as 11-8 with one firm.

West Ham are 16-1 to be relegated from the Premier League following a 4-1 loss against Manchester City, a defeat which leaves them three points above the drop zone.

City, who have scored 102 league goals this term, raced into a 2-0 lead thanks to Leroy Sane's opener and an own goal from their former right-back Pablo Zabaleta before Aaron Cresswell gave the Hammers brief hope of a comeback.

However, Pep Guardiola's champions upped their game after the break and added further goals through Brazilian pair Gabriel Jesus and Fernandinho.

No bookmakers are offering prices on bottom club West Brom going down but Stoke are 1-12 for the drop with Southampton evens, Huddersfield 13-8 and Swansea 11-4.

An eventful day at Sunderland saw them sack manager Chris Coleman and confirm that a deal has been agreed to sell the club to a consortium led by Eastleigh chairman Stewart Donald.

Mick McCarthy is 3-1 favourite with Betfair and Paddy Power to return to the club who will be in Sky Bet League One next season while Sky Bet offer 7-2 about Michael Appleton replacing Coleman.

Chris Wilder is a 5-1 shot with Power and Betfred while Sky Bet are the same price about Jaap Stam moving to the Stadium of Light on a permanent basis.

Celtic secured their seventh straight Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership title in style with a thumping 5-0 victory over Old Firm rivals Rangers at Parkhead.
